    2004 sti going through full oil change in 3 weeks w/ no leak ?

    I have a 2004 sti with minimal mods(cob intake, down pipe, clutch) I had my oil changed 3 weeks ago and I noticed yesterday that there was no more oil left. I park in the same spot in the garage and I don't see any leaks in there or on the car. I drive decently hard but mostly highway miles as it is my daily driver. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Did you check the oil level after the oil was changed?

    If yes, keep looking for a leak. Maybe the oil is hitting something hot and burning off. If you can't find a leak, check the PCV system and if that's OK check for puddles of oil in the IC. If you can't find the problem take the car to a shop.

    If no, always check the oil level after every change, especially if you do not do your own oil changes.

    Great I appreciate the help. I did a visual and didn't see much but the car was dropped off tonight so i will check the oil again after they finish up with the car.
    Thanks
